Great variety of choices, portions are big and child-friendly. The coffees and drinks are delicious. Ingredients are fresh and served in a reasonable amount of time. It's free seating and first come first serve. You have to pay for your meal first at the counter....More

Had some vegan desserts but they were really just okay--pumpkin pie and chocolate cake. For a place with this reputation, I expected more so I was slightly disappointed. The staff were friendly, but I did have to wait a while for them to cut the...More

My daughter and I came here 3 times in the two days that we stayed in Santa Monica. The food and drinks were always tasty, and although very busy, we always managed to get a table on the patio.

Busy cafe with tight spaces. You’ll queue if you good early afternoon or late morning. But worth the wait. Lovely genuine organic food, such as the turkey sandwich-burger, many healthy options and desserts to die for such as the blueberry mini cake. Can eat 5...More

Its so good to know that whatever is ordered and whenever the visit, the quality and variety of food is consistently good and the superb coffee and bakery choices excellent. Urth Cafe is always humming and for the best of reasons.

Traveling with a vegan a friend with nut allergies often made it difficult to find food that satisfied both however Urth caffe left us all charmed. The food was lovely and the venue quite pretty. Located in a nice part of Santa Monica

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
